It's a very honest, open and friendly service. It's helping me get a better grounding in the financials, and I'm meeting new people as well. I'm hoping to be working closely with Ray, Steve and Mark in the future.

Really good people; they come across as believing in what they are doing and genuinely coming across as a group that want to help others. As of today it hasn't been of benefit to my company yet, but in the future I think it will be of significant benefit. I'm an operations person, I can't seen numbers, I always rely on a financially qualified person to tell me what the figures mean, but this course is showing me how to get valuable information, in English, with pictures, that I can discuss with an accountant, or business owner, on an equal footing. There's so much gold dust being spread in my direction I'm just hoovering it up at the moment. I haven't had time to stop and think. It's a subject I've not dealt with on a day to day basis before, and by December I need to get up to speed so I have the courage to go out and talk to accountants and business people on this subject matter with confidence. I have no doubt at all that for the first one or two encounters with potential customers, be it accountants or business people, that I'll have Steve watching my back and helping me.

The course is delivered very enthusiastically. It's got very good supporting materials for us to review and to do our homework. It's good that it starts on time which is a bit of a rarity, and it's a very nice, friendly bunch, both the presenters and the cohort. It will allow me to engage more effectively with accountants so that they can grow their business and in turn I can grow my business. They say what they have to say, they check our understanding, if we want to ask questions we do, and any questions asked are always answered fully.

The thing that stands out is the professionalism, and that all the material has been very carefully thought through; The further in we go, the better it looks. I've also signed up as a partner on the portal so I'm starting to see stuff that as a partner. In one sense it hasn't benefitted us yet as I've not been able to talk to other people about it yet, but I expect it to affect new clients in my own business where I will provide the portal, and also to work with accountants to implement the system for them to work with their clients. Interviewer Note: it wasn't a great line, so while Jeremy spoke slowly for me, please ensure he's checked it over before publishing to ensure I haven't misunderstood anything.

I like the attention detail; thorough presentations and plenty of opportunity to ask questions. I am hoping it will make me money; I'm expecting it to provide opportunities that wouldn't otherwise be available to me, another route to market.

The bit that stands out for me is that we have a product, an ultimate end use product, that's extremely good, but the bit I like about the course is that it very much explains the benefits that you can then deliver to people, which is over and above what any other course has been able to deliver. Others are selling a similar product, but they just give you it and send you on your way, where we're looking at how you're going to use the product, which is more important, and of more benefit, to me. I had my business going in a general direction I was quite happy with, and had been looking at and fine tuning over a number of years. We're now looking at VFD etc. as part of that programme; The comment I have made to a few people now is that, at 67, in my business life there have only been two outstanding products, or things I can offer going forward, and this is the second one, and that's how highly I rate what we do on this course. It's the second one in my life, of what I'd describe as an opportunity to do something, to be outstanding versus other business advisors. The majority of my work comes through relationships with accountants, and in actual fact they like it and are finding it of significant value once we get the point across. I'm actually calling Steve this morning about more accountants who want to get involved with us. We're at the early stages of building a programme with this, and we're the first group. It's very open; they take feedback and listen to it. The more you go back and ask the questions, rather than them seeing it as an annoyance, they see it as someone getting involved and wanting to learn more, and they evolve with it as well. I'm really pleased.

What I like best is it's spaced out and piece meal, so we're not getting inundated with reams of information and have plenty of time to work on things. The course has benefitted our business very well; the easiest thing I can say is that, with the information we receive, it gives us the confidence to speak to our target market. It is over 12 weeks and we're very familiar now with zoom now and I'm happy taking part in that way.

I have always seen accountants as a good route to market for my services but in many cases they do not like to engage with business advisors. By working with Business Advisor and using the VFD-Pro product I have been able to break down these barriers by providing accountants with something they can understand and see the clear benefits from. In turn VFD-Pro has highlighted issues in their clients’ business that need specialist advice and guidance which I am more that happy to provide!

The best part of the Business Advisor Programme was the clarification of the process and what it would mean for my business. A method to generate more business of the ideal profile, without having to spend money on conventional marketing. Referrals are always the best kind of new business, so to be able to save money on all the usual promotional methods and avoid the pains of cold calling and networking, whilst improving the client profile and therefore the bottom line, is particularly interesting.

I liked the accessibility and availability of the BA team to support my sales activity, which is very good. There is a good atmosphere about the BA team and associated advisors all of whom want to hep each other to succeed. I would recommend Business Advisor to anyone who is wanting to work with SMEs to help them uncover problems and opportunities. The tools that BA have are unique and will almost definitely create opportunities in every prospect that you meet.
